Mobile World Congress 2018
Nokia 808 PureViewNokia pushes the camera phone to its limits with the 41-megapixel 808 PureView. CNET goes hands-on with this media monster at Mobile World Congress 2012.
Hi. I'm Ken Sherman, senior managing editor at Cnet. I'm here at Mobile World Congress 2012 in Barcelona. I wanna show you the Nokia 808 Pureview. This is a pretty exciting phone because you know why, it has a 41 megapixel camera. Yes, I said 41 megapixel and your probably your child maybe dropping this out a little bit and I don't blame you 'cause, you know, we've seen anything pixelated (thin cam?) that's gone up from that. So this is a high-end camera. No, it's not a Windows Phone, that's pretty interesting. It's actually runs on Symbian. As appropriate, we'll come (forget the one as well?) like the zoom. The body is pretty a little smaller actually across the (front end?) I thought it was a. it is quite (thick?) so you have this big bump from the back, that's were the camera lens is so you see those 41 megapixel, (gotta?) call these lens, got that big flash. There's a lot of media integration with this phone. You have pretty good sound quality. Next thing I'm about to show to you there's just a big bar down here from getting to the menu, main menu of course, very Symbian, looks a little like a Nokia 900, if you remember that. You just scroll through things, all usable from iPhone features they're gonna be here. Outside is full of plastic material. It feels, I don't know. It doesn't exactly feel completely solid so I would be afraid of throwing this phone around. So it does have a comfortable feeling in the hand though. So just about 41 megapixel camera so a huge deal especially for a small phone like this. So probably not gonna replace the idea (for Lark?) 'cause it's not gonna have an option for zoom or anything like that. So high-end camera phone. I'm Ken Sherman and this the Nokia 808 Pureview
